Caravan Coffee Roasters Maria Ramirez - 250g
The latest Caravan Guatemalan filter offering comes from a female producer in Huehuetenango. Maria Ramirez’s farm Finca T’zun Witz sits in the municipality of Concepción Huista.
At T’zun Witz, Mrs. Ramirez grows the varieties Catuai, Caturra, and Bourbon under Inga and Gravilea shade trees. She and her workers selective pick the ripest cherries with three passes over the fields during harvest. Following picking, she immediately de-pulps the coffee before leaving it in water to ferment for 36 hours. Following this long fermentation, the coffee is then cleaned with fresh water before patio drying. This period of comparatively long wet fermentation is necessitated by the cold nights of Huehuetenango, imparting a distinct fruity, berry-like tone to the coffee whilst keeping the bright and clean acidity of the washed process.
